Golf Courses at Palmetto Dunes

Hole 10 on the Jones Course at Palmetto Dunes

Robert Trent Jones Course

The family-friendly resort originally opened in 1968 with the Robert Trent Jones Course.

While the high standard of design has easily stood the test of time, the course undertook a major renovation in the early 2000s to ensure the playability of the layout for future generations.

The course is heavily influenced by the ever-present ocean winds. Be sure and warm up before the round on the Toptracer range and pro shop featuring rentals, equipment, and the latest fashions.

Palmetto Dunes Bridge

George Fazio Course

Before Tom Fazio made his legendary mark on the Top 100 Best Courses, there was his uncle George, who was one of the dominant golf course architects in the 1970s.

Unlike Tom, before George switched careers, he was an accomplished professional playing in seven Masters tournaments and finishing 14th in one of them.

His design, the George Fazio Course, has been rated among America’s 100 Best and is a former winner of the ‘South Carolina Golf Course Owners Course of the Year’ distinction.

Take advantage of every scoring opportunity as there are only two par 5s on the layout – the first and the eighteenth.

Hills course Palmetto Dunes

Arthur Hills Course

In 1986 Arthur Hills added another stunning design addition, the Arthur Hills Course, that is among the Top 30 you can play in South Carolina.

Here the emphasis is on accuracy and precision shot-making, rather than brute strength, to score well.

In 1968 Palmetto Dunes dug out a unique lagoon system that encircles one of the real estate divisions. Besides providing a great recreational amenity for residents, the dredging of the lagoon was critical in saving the dune ecosystem and managing the original swamp landscape. It comes into play on no less than 10 holes of the Hill’s course.
